This is a very special birthday present because
I’m giving it to my real special friend, Adam. I want
you to know that I always had fun times being with
It was great playing soccer baseball and school
with you. It was fun just talking to you. I loved
going to camp with you.
I hope that you’ll always have a extra special
place in your heart for me because I’ll never forget
you, my best friend Adam.
I love you,
